Fact of the Saturday – Health Reality or Unhealthy Myth?

Think that having a wax is painful, but in the end its worth it because you feel beautiful? Well, what if I told you that both a Bikini or a Brazilian Wax could give you a Sexually Transmitted Infection?

How is that possible?

Well, this is caused by your skin creating micro-tears, if it makes contact with viruses (that can squeeze through). This can possibly happen if you have already made contact with a partner or stranger/s.

Signs of these include redness, inflammation, peeling and bleeding.

Even though waxing itself is safe, it’s never a good idea to make sexual contact on the same day as you have had a wax or if your skin is suffering irritation from the process – best to leave it one day after or decide not to have contact if the irritation is still there. Better to be safe than sorry.

Is It Hard to Dis Sweet Treats? What Are My Aspirations For the Summer Holidays? Part 2

It’s week two of my summer fitness aspiration and so far, it’s been going well.

Before writing my list last week, I realised that I’d forgotten to write down my measurement for my waist. This is another main task for the summer – a starter for this challenge. At the start of each week, I’ll measure my waist line and record each one on a piece of paper. Unfortunately, we’ve lost our tap measurer. So, we had to make do with a ribbon and marking measurements on a ruler (in cemeteries).

So, far my first two measurements look something like this:

20th July – 79cm

27th July – 66cm

 

I couldn’t believe the results when I saw them. However, my task is far from over; I’ve realise that I am going to up my game and push myself to the next level. This new level is turning out to be a really, really, really hard one. Sort of like an extremely bad temptation that I cannot control since I had my parents to help me out of this one. Cut out most sweet treats.

I love sweet treats which I have on rare occasions including popcorn, chips, ice cream, and pan de chocolate, bread, fruit lollies, custard and muffins. But, it’s so difficult – they are so irresistible and my weaknesses point. I’m really unsure if I can cope or how to control this temptation, expect by drinking a full cup of water. But is that enough? Can I find another source that’ll help me overcome this?

What do you guys think? Is it really hard to dis sweet treats?

What Are My Aspirations For the Summer Holidays?

As well as writing a Bucket List for the summer, I also have aspirations to keep my life on track – and to keep healthy.

In the past, I have never kept my health up to date; mainly because I’ve been busy and pretty lazy. So to change my ways, I’ve decided to keep fit and take on health classes. I decided to try:

  • Zumba
  • Aqua Aerobics
  • Swimming
  • Badminton
  • Walking
  • Gym

I’ve already tired Zumba, Aqua Aerobics, walking and swimming; I really enjoyed these classes, and activities and will return to them within the next week.

I’m going to look at fitness activities when I’m away on holiday and see how much difference it’ll make when I reach September.

Also, I’m going to try to cut back on food by eating healthier. All my loved ones have told me that stomachs are about the same size as a human fist and it’s very important to listen to your body; it’s like another human being only it lives inside of you. So, I’m going to try and cut the limit of starch, unhealthy main meals, desserts and snacks. For breakfast, I’m to have three slices of bread instead of four, have occasional unhealthy food (either once every two – three weeks or once a month), and try my best to eat more vegan and vegetarian food.

So, that’s it – that’s my aspiration for the summer. Do you have any aspirations for this summer, this year or next year?

I hope you are all enjoying the rest of the summer (or the first week if you live in the UK).
